What's Covered

Small business insurance protects you and your business against lawsuits in the case of property damage, bodily injury, and more.

Thimble offers easy, affordable, and flexible protection for photographers.

66% of photographer policies cost less than $25
"When I’m working in an area around other people, there’s always the risk that someone could be injured. With Thimble, I can whip out my cell phone and purchase $1 million in coverage instantly." Mike M., Fine Art Photographer

Insurance designed for small business

  • Why do I need a photographer insurance policy? As a photographer, you bring a creative approach to problem-solving and help your clients tackle every challenge that comes their way. Shouldn't you do the same for your business? A Thimble insurance policy can give you the peace of mind you need to propel your business to new heights.

    The General Liability insurance arranged by Thimble is designed to respond to incidents involving bodily injury and property damage. For example:

    Bodily Injury
    You are taking headshots for a client in your studio. At the end of the session, they trip over a light stand that you have set out for a later photo shoot.
    Property Damage
    You are in a client’s home to photograph their baby shower, and you knock over and break an expensive platter that has been set out for the party.
  • How much does small business insurance for photographers cost? Our premium pricing is determined based on the length of your coverage, whether for an hour, a day, a month, or longer. This flexibility allows you to purchase coverage exactly when and for how long you need it, making it the most affordable option on the market for on-demand small business insurance.

    Our rates start at $5/hour, $7/day, and $15/month with $0 deductible for a $1 million policy.
